Close call at the track.

Almost high sided attempting to go in under another rider that I knew was going wide after missing the line on the first turn. Gave it the beans a little to quick and not as smooth as I could have. Luckily did not go down.

No, the track and tires were warm. Just got on the throttle to quickly, especially with the tire over a patch of smoother black patched track.

No, after the bike settled, I was like, I am still on this thing. Pitted in for a quick breather.

Were you adding lean angle and throttle at the same time. Didn't appear to me a tight corner. Glad you're OK

Lol those Texas tracks! ECR turn 2 is known for high sides. Gotta be careful (especially with the seepage)

Killcity, yeah you get use to the bumps. Did have to get more aggressive pegs to keep my feet on in some turns.

Jerryjoose, a couple are a little rough, going to COTA this weekend , don't need to say how smooth that track is!

Number2, yes, came up off the bike and helmet smashed into the screen. Sure it looked worse from other angles.
